Indy Boonen struck to earn Manchester United a 1-1 draw with Manchester City that moved them off the foot of the Premier League 2 Division 1 table.

United's hopes of avoiding relegation were hit at City's Academy Stadium when Lorenzo Gonzalez put City ahead after four minutes.

But, in first-half stoppage time, Boonen (pictured) nodded in Callum Gribbin's free-kick.

City, for whom Benjamin Mendy made a return after a seven-month injury absence, dominated after the break but Kieran O'Hara's saves for United earned them a vital point.

United, on 19 points, climb above Sunderland, who have a match in hand, on goal difference. But they will be relegated if Derby County beat West Ham United next week. 

City are eighth on 27 points.
